There has been no breach of security. This is a scam and VM would never call you like this. The scammers know the blocks of numbers assigned to each of the UK telcos (publicly available information) so just auto dial them and hope for a hit. It's a generalised plague made worse by the pandemic and people are are at home and answering the phone.


I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media. Learn more

Thanks for quick reply. I told him just to disconnect me, he wasn't too pleased.
